<field property="userLogin.password" depends="required,mask">
<msg name="mask" key="errors.invalid"/>
<arg0 key="userLogin.initialPassword"/>

In the above mentioned way I have mapped the password field to required rule and mask rule. The required rule is applied to the password field but the mask rule is not applied when i click the submit button.

All regular expressions in the Struts mask rule must start with a ^ and end with a $.

And make sure that you define a "errors.password.maskMsg" in your file

errors.password.maskMsg= message.
